Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Loosely connected by their incorporation of the paranormal, this quartet of novellas takes readers, with varying degrees of success, from contemporary Maine to the fantastical land of Callemore, the Scottish Highlands and the 19th-century Cornish countryside. The collection is bookended by its two strongest offerings-"Wolf Moon," Roberts's brisk romance between a female werewolf and the vet who may be able to cure her, and Willman's compelling gothic fairy tale "West of the Moon," which describes what happens when the human and Faerie realms collide. The remaining entries, Gregory's "The Moon Witch" and Langan's "Blood on the Moon," feature stock protagonists (the brave but impetuous heroine, the emotionally scarred, Robin Hood-like warrior, etc.) and stereotypically evil antagonists; in Gregory's offering, a witch and warlock unite to pursue their goal of world domination, and in Langan's, a vicious warlord rapes and plunders his way across the Highlands. These four authors have collaborated on previous anthologies (Once Upon a Midnight; Once Upon a Rose), so there's a built-in readership for this book. But with its uneven quality and strained integration of the "moon" motif, it isn't likely to be many readers' favorite. (Oct.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Just in time for Halloween, Roberts and her cohorts from Once Upon a Midnight have teamed up to produce another stellar collection of love stories. This time the focus is on the magic, mystery, and lore of the full moon and the power it has for both good and ill. Robert's contemporary werewolf tale, along with the mystical and legend-laden historicals of Jill Gregory, Ruth Ryan Langan, and Marianne Willman, feature human characters that mingle nicely (or otherwise) with faeries, witches, and mysterious folk of other realms.

I really enjoyed Wolf Moon. It was intriguing and absorbing. The Second one was ok, but I thought that it could have been developed more. There was more to the story than we got to read. Blood on the Moon was another hit. I really liked it, suspenseful enough to keep you turning the page. The last was a good spin on the Beauty and the Beast, I really liked it.
